Tastes and colors

English version below the pictures

En févier dernier notre fille  Véronique est venue chez nous pendant trois jours avec la ferme intention de peindre unchambre. Le papier peint n’était pas déchiré sauf sous la fenêtre qui avait été changée. Le moment le plus charmant était celui où Janine et elle sont allées au magasin pour choisir la peinture. Véronique aime la couleur vive. Elle a acheté des pots de guacamole vert un autre de couleur clématite de la montagne. En fait ce dernier me parut plutôt comme une amarante. Je ne suis pas sûr que nous voyons les mêmes couleurs !!

Puis pendant 3 jours Véronique aidée par Janine mettre des couches de guacamole vert et en contarst le clématite -Amaranthe sous la fenêtre.

Le résultat est à couper le souffle? Elle a osé et elle a réussi. Le résultat est assez nouveau pour nous mais nous admettons que c’était beau;


Veronique put the green guacamole at the top of the wall( en haut du mur)


 SHE PUTS A LAYER AT THE LOWER WALL pUIS ELLE met une couche en bas du mur


Janine is  vacuuming, Janine passe l’ aspirateur sous la fenêtre ? On voit le superbe pourpre  amaranthe CLEMATITE AMARANTH

In last Fevruary our daughter Véronique came at our home for three days with the firm intention to paint a bedroom. The wall paper was not torn excepted below the window which had been  changed. The moment the more delightful was the one where Janine and her  went to the store to choose the paint . Veronique loves the vivid colors  they bought a pot of a paint colored green guacamole and another of color clematite of the mountain.In fact this last  looked rather for me like an amaranth . I am not sure we see the same colors !!

Then during 3 days Véroniqhe helped by janine put layers of green guacamole and in contast le clematite –Amaranthe below the window .

  The result is breathtaking . She dare and she succeded l The result is something quite new for us but we admit It was beautiful ;

A la fin les deux travailleuses étaient épuisées comme le montre la  photo. Fatiguées mais heureuses de leur travail d’art


At the end  the  two workers were exhausted as the photo shows . exhausted but happy of their art work

Et voilà le résultat . Aimez- vous ?


SThe new painted bedroom

Here is the result . Do you like it


ps : I got yesterday Tuesday my first dialysis

  1. Ah! Those are fantastic colors! The combination is startling, yet so beautiful. Well done, workers.

  2. Lavinia Ross says:

    Beautiful colors, and fine work by Véronique and Janine! Just in time for spring, Michel!
    Much love to you and the family. ❤

  3. J’en ai une comme cela à la maison, qui va repeindre la chambre en abricot et framboise. En voyant les pots, il ne me saute pas aux yeux que le résultat puisse être superbe … et il l’est ! Meci pour cette communication, Michel, et une belle soirée à vous.

    • Nous sommes dans les comestibles, Gillles , toi dans les abricots et les framboises et moi dans le fruits mexicains ( guacamole . C ‘ est peut-être de là que vient l’ expression “lécher les murs” ! 🙂

    I do like it. I think most of the younger generation prefer brighter colors. 11 years ago I chose off- white for most of our walls because we have so many African paintings and a lot of my father’s oriental rugs. I felt that would be enough color, and I’ve been happy with the choice. It’s about time to repaint though.

  5. cocosangel says:

    I love the work they had done! The color is perfect and excellent. That must have been a hard work for them.

  6. mrswrangler says:

    The colors are not my choice but look well together. I will add you to my prayer list. Hope your treatments go well.

  7. KB says:

    I would not have combined those colors myself, but seeing the completed room, I think it looks wonderful and fresh! Very good work.

  8. blb1 says:

    Loved the picture with the tired ladies. Glad you are happy with the colors. My house is small, pastels except the dinning room. 🙂

  9. Eat Right Chef Louisa says:

    J’aime bien le résultat–très charmant! Ce sont des coleur complementaires. Ta femme et filles travaille bien ensemble! xoxo

  10. Oh, so lovely! And such pretty hard workers who did all of the work! 🙂
    I like the colors! Especially the clematite (eggplant-y) color! The two colors together remind me of Spring and will be very cheer-y in the dreary Fall and Winter! 🙂

    I hope your your first dialysis went well, Michel. I was thinking about you and praying.
    HUGS!!! and ❤ 🙂

  11. fauquet véronique says:

    Waow !!! Magnifique cette chambre !!!!

  12. jstnotherday says:

    “I am not sure we see the same colors !!”
    I laughed about that. I completely understand.
    Some of the best time of my life was when my daughter helped me to choose the colors to paint our living room, and then helped to do the painting. You and Janine are so blessed to still have that.
    The colors are truly colorfully interesting. 🙂
    On the p.s. for Tuesday…. I pray all went well.
    Love and (((hugs))),

    • The tastes for the colors are not always concordant but Veronique knew how to be convincing
      Thank you, Lynn, for thinking of my first dialysis, There were no difficulties. The next will take place next Saturday .

  13. Bold and spectacular, well done girls! Hope the dialysis goes smoothly for you.

  14. Beautiful colors. I like vivid colors too. 🙂

  15. The avocado green is a nice colour. I probably won’t have chosen the other colour but they seem to work well together. I hope your dialysis treatments continue to go well.

  16. neilc693 says:

    I like both colors, but I think I would have done the entire room in one or the other color. Brighter or darker depending on how much activity will be in the area.

  17. puffpop says:

    Such a bright and cheerful color! Veronica is a true artist.
    I’m taking a break from face book for awhile. I just might put up an Easter card just before Easter.

    Love …
    votre amie,

  18. puffpop says:

    I have been praying for you. I see from the comment above that your dialysis went well. John goes 3 times per week. He is usually tired when he gets home and has been taking a nap. Dialysis is a life saver…

  19. Lowie says:

    Dear Michel,
    I’ve missed too many of your posts. Now I will go back and read them.
    First, I love the very French color combination, but I think I would always be hungry for guacamole in that room! Nice job, Janine and Veronica and they still had energy to make mashed potatoes! 😎
    Second, what’s this about dialysis? I’ve missed something! Hope you are feeling ok after your treatment.
    Much love from Texas,
    Lowie ❤️🌸❤️🌸❤️

    Happy Spring!
    Lowie ❤️❤️🌸🌸❤️❤️

    • Hello Lowie §It is a pleasure to read you . Green guacamole has a south AMERICAN TOUCH ( or perhaps Texan ? )
      The first dialysis last tuesday went well . The next one is tomorrow. Thank you to ask , dear Lowie ❤

  20. Susan Joos says:

    Those colors are too bold for me, but then, I just got rid of the green in my living room a few months ago. It looks like a wonderful paint job, though – painting can be much more difficult than it looks, especially with your high ceilings! Glad that your dialysis went well; I hope it made you feel much better, too.

    • Every people has a sensibilty differetnt to the colors . And that can change with the time , Susan.. Yes the ceilings are high and three days has been needed to Veronique to paint the room ( two layers )

  21. suester7 says:

    A very bold, unusual choice of colours, but the result is lovely. She truly has an eye for colour.

  22. Annalisa says:

    Le résultat est très agréable et moderne. Bravo les femmes qui ont osé!
    Meilleurs voeux de Bonnes Pâques à vous tous (la semine prochaine j’aurai mon usuel cycle de thérapie des yeux à l’hôpital – très peu de chances de pouvoir lire ou écrire pendant quelques jours, avec l’espoir de sauver la vue quelques temps encore!).
    Avec toute mon amitié!

  23. Carole says:

    Oui très beau et très doux bravo Vero, tu veux pas venir chez nous ?

  24. Painting job looks wonderful. Generally, I’m not a vivid color person, but yes your daughter and Janine did excellent in the color combination. Always nice to try something new. A job well done ladies. ❤ Marilyn

  25. Michel, I do hope that you are feeling well after your first treatment of dialysis. I know one can become very tired the day of treatment. I have thought of you often lately and your upcoming treatments. Prayers for you to feel better my friend. Hugs to both you and Janine. ❤ Marilyn

    • I got the secon dialysis this Saturday morning . We feel tired after the dialysis but the day afyer we feel much better . But all of this is only a beginning . Thank to ask <3.

  26. Julie E says:

    The colours of the room look wonderful together , well done to the workers 🙂 🙂 Hope you are feeling better now your treatment has started

  27. Very attractive! Who sleeps in this lovely room?
    I am happy to hear that your dialysis went well.

  28. wnandcj says:

    I was brave and painted upstairs bedrooms one in a sunny yellow and one a great color of red. Downstairs everything is various tones of gray. That way I can use any colors I want for accent.
    Blessings as you deal with dialysis.

  29. Isabel Capillas says:

    The brilliant colors lightened up the bedroom! Wonderful work, Veronica & Janine😘

  30. Marion Manson says:

    The paint job looks fantastic, Michel! Veronique and Janine have done such good work here. It would have been tiring, but certainly well worth the effort. 🙂

  31. Barbara Lenhard says:

    I will try again to comment on your page. I have not been able to do so the last few times I tried.
    It is so nice to have a fresh new look on your walls and so good to have your daughter help with the repainting. It looks like beautiful colors and has a very welcoming look to it.
    Hope you and your family have a very Happy, Blessed Easter…love, Barbara

  32. Rachel says:

    I am enjoying the colors! It is hard work, but the joy it brings makes up for it all!
    Congratulations, ladies! ❤️💚❤️💚

  33. iampeacenow says:

    I love this color combination! It is similar to 2 of the colors my Kendra had in her room and reminds me of that. Kendra would like this room very much! I think it looks bright and modern. Very nice indeed. Their hard work has paid off.
    love & peace,

  34. Nice!
    My best wishes with the treatments, Michel.
